PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "The 770 is not for everybody. If you want something for practical day-to-day use, you're better off buying a PDA or smart phone. And a word to Nokia: make nice with Microsoft. I would love to be able to run Windows Mobile 2005 on this device in place of your version of Linux. It's both fast and complete. Trying to impress the Linux geek crowd is not a good business plan, nor is trying to shoe-horn Linux onto this type of platform. Using Windows Mobile 2005 would make this a far better, and far more successful, mobile device." And part II, one month later: "Right now, I feel like I've pretty much wasted $380 on the 770. I continue to work with it the hope I'll find some hidden feature or application I've missed so far."

The OS (kernel) itself have been successfully put on much smaller devices. It's the upper layers and the developers plaform that are not up to the task.
I'm afraid it will emerge (Acces efforts are good sign) when it's too late, MS owns >90% of mobile platforms and nobody gives a s*t about other alts.
